Dance party goals! After this picture of 2 year old Parker Curry staring up at Michelle Obama’s official portrait went viral, Michelle Obama’s staff were sure to invite her to visit the First Lady’s office.
When her portrait was unveiled, Obama said, “I am thinking about all of the young people, particularly girls and girls of color, who in years ahead will come to this place, and they will look up and see someone who looks like them hanging on the walls of this great institution.” The picture of Parker really brought the former First Lady’s words to life.
The pair met on Tuesday at her office. They spent about 45 minutes together and had a dance party to Taylor Swift’s Shake it Off.
If the thought alone doesn’t make you smile, here’s the video to brighten your day!
Parker, I’m so glad I had the chance to meet you today (and for the dance party)! Keep on dreaming big for yourself…and maybe one day I’ll proudly look up at a portrait of you! pic.twitter.com/faUVTsYWun
